Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-033
Budget: 06/03/14 - 06/08/16

This Phase II SBIR project will develop and field test a wireless "Smart Shelf Life" tag for ordnance which provides real time "go/no-go" status of propellant condition without special training or complex equipment. The tag integrates a new propellant health monitoring (PHM) sensor for nitrocellulose-based propellants developed in the Phase I e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-033
Budget: 03/21/13 - 09/24/13

Polymer Aging Concepts, Inc. proposes to develop a Smart Shelf Life (SSL) tag which provides a low cost health monitoring system for ordnance based on a new condition monitoring sensor technology called AgeAlert . The AgeAlert sensor in SSL labels comprises a conductive composite element made from a tiny portion of desensitized double base pr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-214
Budget: 12/31/12 - 04/02/15

ABSTRACT: A Propellant Health Monitoring (PHM) Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) utilizes actual propellant components in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert . These sensors provide real-time data corresponding to mechanical property degradation resulting from environmental aging of propellants. The sensors are mounted external to the propel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-214
Budget: 07/26/11 - 04/26/12

ABSTRACT: A Health Monitoring Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) uses actual polymeric components of propellant in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert . These sensors will provide real-time data corresponding to aging of the propellant. The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and automatically track degradation passively without el...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 66 A-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10
PI: C. Wong

Insulation system degradation resulting in component failure represents a significant contribution to reliability and cost issues facing the nuclear power industry. For example, the Electric Power Research Institute found that 37% of motor failures were due to winding failures, many of which involve failure of the insulation system. Although the...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: C. Wong

Generation IV nuclear power plants will require new condition monitoring methods in order to provide lower installation and operating costs, and continued improvements in operating efficiency. This project will develop a nanotechnology-based sensor that directly detects degradation of electrical insulation in wire, cable, motors, generators, an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Component failures resulting from degradation within insulation systems represents a significant contribution to reliability and cost issues facing the nuclear power industry. For example, the Electric Power Research Institute found that 37% of motor failures were due to winding failures, many of which involve failure of the insulation system. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The reliability and economic viability of Generation IV nuclear power plants would be significantly enhanced by a simple, low-cost maintenance technology that can predict the degradation of insulation in electrical-power-system components, such as motors, generators and transformers. Current methods require significant operator training for int...
